1978 Florida State Signees/Newcomers

James Bozeman, 6-5, 190, F, Tallahassee - Bozeman was the Florida High School Player of the Year in Class A last winter...while playing for Florida A&M High School of Tallahassee he averaged 23 points and 14 rebounds during his senior season...Bozeman after signing with the Seminoles called it a "dream come true. Ever since I can remember I've wanted to play basketball for Florida State"...James helped the Baby Rattlers capture the Class A Florida high school championship as a junior...the team went 20-6 while Bozeman averaged 20 points per game and 13 reounds...overall, Bozeman led his high school team to a 38-11 record in his last two seasons as a starter...Bozeman, a member of the National Honor Society in high school, played in Florida's North-South High School All-Star game...he was president of his senior class at FAMU High.

Jerry Cox, 6-4, 175, G, Indianapolis, IN - Cox, who played basketball the last two winters at Wabash Valley Junior College in Mt. Carmel, Il, was Florida State's first signee of 1977...Seminole head coach Hugh Durham has designs of using the Indiana native at the "big guard" position..."Jerry is a fine shooter and good ball handler who likes to lead the fast break," Durham said. "We've got good guards coming back off last year's team but with the league (Metro) we're playing in a team needs plenty of guards"...Cox averaged 13 points per game and seven rebounds last winter for Wabash...in his first year at the junior college, he picked up 12 points per game and seven rebounds...A native of Indianapolis, In, Cox played high school ball at Brooke Ripple...he carried a 3.0 grade point average in junior college and was vice president of the student body.

Bobby Parks, 6-0, 165, G, Clearwater - Bobby could be the real sleeper on this year's Seminole team...after a good career at Clearwater High under coach Jack Wilson, he made everybody sit up and take notice with his play in the national AAU tournament...as the starting point guard, Parks led his team to the finals of the prestigious national affair against some of the best amatuer basketball talent in the land...Parks has great quickness and is an excellent ball-handler...Durham feels he is one of the mmost fundamentally sound young players on the club..."All he needs is some playing experience on the major college level and he'll help us," says the coach. "He's not a tricky player but he has the moves and the ability to get the job done. We feel confident after watching his play in the AAU tournament that he will be a tremendous asset to our program"...at only 6 foot, Parks has great leaping ability and has proven that by his ability to dunk the ball...he needs some work on his shooting but with his floor leadership should step in to provide some excellent depth at the point position...Parks is an excellent student who is completing basic studies at Florida State.

From the Tallahassee Democrat, March 12, 1978, page 49.

Hall’s ‘gut’ move ends FSU’s year.

By Bob Blankenship

KNOXVILLE, TN – Kentucky coach Joe Hall’s guts played as large a part as the Wildcats’ physical strength in the come-from-behind 85-76 win over the Florida State Seminoles here Saturday in the opening round of the NCAA Mideast Regional.

Disgusted with the way three of his regulars were playing the game during the first half, Hall benched them in favor of a trio of non-descript reserves, and got the spark the Wildcats needed to overcome the Seminoles’ seven-point halftime lead and snatch victory from their very grasp.

“It took a lot of courage to pull that kind of gamble,” said FSU Coach Hugh Durham afterwards. “He’s got a lot of guts.

“But, it paid off for him. If it hadn’t, he’d be standing here getting roasted, and I’d be in there getting interviewed on television.”

Hall traced every bit of the Wildcats’ come-from-behind thrust at the gamble to sit down 6-10 Rick Robey, All-American Jack Givens and guard Truman Clayter at the start of the second half in favor of Dwane Casey, Fred Cowan and Lavon Williams.

“That’s what won the game for us,” he said. “We didn’t play hard or very good in the first half…So I decided at halftime – on the very spot that we were not going to be beaten standing around. If we were going down, we were going to go down playing aggressively.

“You can give it to all three of these players (Casey, Cowan and Williams),” said Hall. “They turned it around for us. They applied the defensive pressure and we were able to bust their offensive poise.”

The Seminoles, playing what Durham called “our best basketball of the season,” had blitzed the Wildcats with their quickness, harassed them with an intense defense and beat the heck out of the much bigger UK players on the boards to open a 10-point first half lead and bring a total hush over the Kentucky-dominated crowd of 12,700.

They went to the halftime locker room with the 39-32 lead, momentum on their side, the neutral part of the crowd shifting to their side and the Wildcats running around in circles.

Then disaster set in with the start of the second half, when the game changed from a fine one into a helter skelter one.

“Fatigue set in on us,” said Durham, “and we didn’t have as many players as Kentucky.

“Joe’s right; they won it right there at the start of the second half. They took our momentum away and established their style of aggressive basketball.

“We went out there and played rope-a-dope in the first half because that’s the way I thought we had a chance to win, and all of a sudden we ran down. It was, I guess, expecting too much for us to keep it up for a full 40 minutes.”

But they gave it a heck of a shot, before the UK support troops turned the momentum around and then turned it back over to the regulars, who promptly unleashed an offensive bombardment that reeled off 14 straight unanswered UK points, as the Wildcats shot from a five-point deficit (53-48) into a nine-point (62-53) lead in a span of three minutes and 56 seconds.

“That did us in for sure,” said Durham, who picked out point-guard Kyle Macy as the Seminoles’ biggest tormentor.

“You guys can’t write too much about him,” said Durham. “We dogged him from one end of the court to the other, and he stood up under tremendous pressure. We forced him into only one mistake the whole game and he played 38 minutes.”

Macy led the comeback going with Claytor and Givens.

In the end it was Claytor, the only UK starter who doesn’t average scoring in double figures, who led the Wildcats out of the wilderness with 16 points. Macy and Mike Phillips each had 14 points, while Robey added 12 and Givens 11.

Held to a 48.1 shooting percentage by harassing defense, the Wildcats came out and made 65.4 percent of their second half shots and wound up with 56.6 percentage for the game.

The Wildcats, beaten 20 to 14 on the boards in the first half, wound up with a 32-31 rebounding edge for the game.

The Seminoles, who shot 54.8 percent in the first half, cooled off to 48.4 in the second and finished at 51.6.

Once again, as he had done in scoring 19 against UK last season, Mickey Dillard provided the biggest Seminole thrust with 21 points, coming on an eight for 10 shooting performance. He had 13 of his points at intermission. His biggest support came from David Thompson who pumped in 15, Harry Davis who had 11 and Tony Jackson who had 10.

Eugene Harris, who played the game in pain with that heavily bandaged right knee, still managed nine Seminole points in playing 28 minutes.

As it turned out, Harris, Thompson, Davis and James Smith were playing their final game for the Seminoles, who finished the season with a 23-6 record.

Kentucky, which plays Miami of Ohio Thursday in the second-round game of the Mideast at Dayton, surely protected its No. 1 rating while boosting its record to 26-2.

“It wasn’t easy,” Hall said.

It wasn’t. The Seminoles served notice early in the game when there were 10 lead changes and four ties in the first 10 minutes.

The Seminoles, who were to lead until midway the second half, broke on top at 20-18 with 10:27 left in the first half.

By then Dillard had entered the game, and had already scored eight of his points, six of them on fast break baskets that had the crowd oohing and aahing and Hall pacing in front of the UK bench and substituting frantically.

Dillard, who took a rest, came back in play the final 5:48 of the half as the Seminoles spurted to their 10-point lead at 37-27 as UK went 5:22 without a field goal. Dillard and Thompson scored four points each as the Seminoles ran off a 9-1 edge in a span of 1:32.

But, the Seminoles missed a chance to pad that lead just before the half when their four-corner offense fell apart with two turnovers, the first coming after they had run almost two minutes off the clock. Things, however, started going wrong from the start of the second half for the Seminoles, who turned the ball over four times in the first three minutes, but still managed to hold that lead because it was the UK defensive troops, nit the offensive ones in the game.

The Seminoles were still up by five (51-46) when Givens, Robey and Clayton joined Phillips and Macy in the lineup with 11 minutes to go.

For the next four and one-half minutes or so the Seminoles managed just one field goal – one by Dillard, who pumped one in at the 10:15 mark. The clock showed 6:35 when he hit two free throws for the Seminoles next points.

In between, Macy, Givens and Claytor had scored four points apiece and Robey had added two.

Then it was foul and hope and scramble time for the Seminoles, who did manage to get within five on two occasions, but UK shot the eyes out of it from the foul line. The Wildcats scored 15 of their 21 points over one stretch from the free throw line with the clock stopped to open their 10-point lead at 73-63.

The Seminoles’ last gasps at pulling it out probably came with 2:30 left when the official didn’t call goal tending against UK James Lee on a shot by Thompson when the Seminoles missed the chance to cut it to four.

After that, the Wildcats hit six more free throws while the Seminoles missed four in a row.

The final minute of the Seminoles’ incredible season was played with Harris limping around, Davis on the bench with leg cramps, Kris Anderson and Dillard there with five personal fouls.

But they gave it a heck of a shot.
